How to get my boyfriend to hold hands?

I've been dating my boyfriend for a week now, and we haven't held hands yet. I really, really want to, but I'm just too chicken and shy to do so. He is also shy, and is usually quiet. This is my first real boyfriend, and so I don't have much experience with guys. He likes me, I like him. We sit next to each other whenever we can. He does walk side by side with me, so should I reach his hand unexpectedly and hold hands? UGH! I don't know how or when to do this. I need advice. I do wish he'd make the first move about this, but he was the one who asked me out. So, do you think he wants me to make the first move?

  • Just make the first move yourself. Honestly, I don't think most guys think of hand holding as a really big deal. At least not in the way girls seem to.
